What would you do in this situation?
We live in a small but growing town near Charlotte. The city’s housing market is booming and so is ours. There is LOT of new construction in our area and my house is 15yrs old but has lots of upgrades. My house has also appreciated well and my youngest is a rising junior so we were planning to downsize in 2-3 yrs when he goes to college so what I am trying to decide is whether to sell now to lock in the profit or wait for 2-3 yrs - continued in comments below

What do y'all think of the gun stocks(vista, s&w, ruger)? There was a jump after the the riot at the capitol, but pulled back on Friday, not sure if there's likely more growth to come soon or not.

Is the Strategy& health practice still hiring a lot? If so, is 100% remote still possible for new hires, or is that option phasing out? Would 60-70 hours a week be realistic, or more like 70-80+? Thanks!
Working on an e-commerce partnership agreement, company refusing to mutually indemnify. They’re arguing the sentence stating parties are liable for statutory violations is enough; however, they include a longer indemnification for themselves but nothing for us.
What is a good workaround here to get us fully indemnified?
Im an undergrad student from Mexico, currently working at Deloitte Audit as an intern, but i wanna move into consulting as a business analyst intern, does anybody know the salaries in McKinsey Mexico? (im also interested in BCG and Bain).
Have people been successful in withdrawing from altcoin exchanges? I want to go in, but the app reviews are scaring me...
Not a lawyer specific question, but since many of us have crazy student loan debt thought I’d ask here. Why on earth isn’t there a conversation around the predatory interest rates on student loans? I feel like it would be so easy for the federal government to slash those rates, then people would actually pay back their loans, and it would be so much better for so many. We are instead having exclusively conversations about loan forgiveness but why no love for reduction in interest?

Worked in Financial Services and Wealth Management for 12 years. CFP working in the banking channel and completing my MBA within a few months with a focus in Mergers & Acquisitions. Really can’t take the stress and compliance involved with being an Advisor anymore I’m losing hair everyday. Any suggestions where to go?
Is it unethical as realtors working in an office to block chunks of time off for personal reasons? Some of my coworkers stay in their desks for up to 10 hours, but I've taken up the habit of blocking at least 1 hour daily for lunch, breaks, and other issues that may arise. Do you do this as well or do you prefer to work straight through your day?

I know my casing needs work but I’m constantly being advised not to over prepare. I can’t help but feel that I’m going to be missing out on some things if I don’t case enough. Is there actually any such thing as over preparing?
Bain & Company Bain 🐠—joining soon and trying to decide what to do with current 401k. Who manages Bain’s 401k plan? Do they allow rollovers from previous employers and trad IRAs? I want to avoid pro rata rules for backdoor Roth. And are after tax contributions (mega backdoor Roth) easy to do? Thanks!! Bain & Company
Hi is anyone preparing for their upcoming R1 for BCG? I tried the bot test and got everything wrong rip. Would love to discuss and start a group to prep together! Background/ 1 yoe, graduated last yr from a target, interviewed with McKinsey and Bain’s final round in fall of 2020. I feel like I peaked then and could never go back anymore lol
Just did the mck problem solving test and there was an error on one of the maps - it said a resource would be available at a certain location but it wasn’t! Completed the feedback survey - anything else I should do/tell?
Question for the BCGers (in North America). I understand that the firm is more regional-based as compared to McK (where you get thrown wherever the project is at the time)… But I’m wondering to what degree can someone at the C/PL level get exposure to int’l clients? What % of your clients were in MENA, AP, LATAM, etc.? Boston Consulting Group
Idk how, but I got the offer. Still wondering if it’s real (it’s been 30mins since the phone call) because I thought I performed so poorly. I wouldn’t have passed myself. I hope the interviewers didn’t make a mistake (accidentally mixed up evals for another candidate, or the call was meant for another candidate w/ the same name). I do want to thank the Fishbowl community though. So many of you took the time to share your experiences and encourage me. I couldn’t have done this without you.
I applied two different roles at McKinsey yesterday: a specialist role and an implementations role. How long does it take before a recruiter responds for these types of roles?
BCG US fishies!
If i applied to BCG China 1 year ago & got rejected, can i reapply now with a consultant's referral to the US (no resume improvements, just referral + applying to new geography)? Does BCG track applications globally & do they strictly require 2 years new experience for reapplicants? Would the consultant's referral make a difference in getting an interview 1 year post-rejection?

First congratulations! But boy oh boy - you shouldn’t be asking that question after you’ve likely got and accepted an offer lol.
This makes me consider if I want to stay here long term lol
Lmaoo all work, no l or b
Accepted - these are learning questions folks. Spent 4 years at McK so, somewhat familiar with the game
Thanks for the input. I did see 60-70 hour weeks but rarely (if any) approaching 80. Let’s see :) excited to start!
What level did you leave Mck at? I’d say you should be prepared for year 1 to be totally work focused, not much WLB. It will take you 6-9 months to integrate and find your folks. Once you find a few partners that you click with, and work with closely, and understand their rhythm, then perhaps you can make slight adjustments on scheduling
I left recently for a tech opportunity and moved across the country.
Got it - at what level did you leave? Which practice were you affiliated with? Which office? Solving to contextualize your input…
Love the humor folks - estimates and nuances?
D1 - of course, that is what I’d expect. Are you at BCG? Which office? Open to chatting?
55 if you’re really good, 80 if you’re bad?
No way you come externally and work 55. 5+ years of BCG experience and a good pyramid? Maybe. Lateral hire? No way.
Op - do you have an accepted offer or are you interviewing?
Any NA BCG principals open to chatting?
